In 2020, Copart made a substantial purchase of new JCB vehicle loaders as part of their ongoing investment into strengthening our logistical capabilities in line with growing customer demand, bringing Copart’s total owned UK wide logistics fleet to over 400.

As a tech-focused company that is committed to caring for the environment and encouraging sustainability in everything they do, their ongoing and close relationship with Watling JCB has proved to be a perfect partnership.

Always at the forefront of innovative and sustainable solutions, JCB are committed to making both their business and their machines more sustainable and have delivered many environmental initiatives in recent years.

During their visit to the JCB World Headquarters in Rocester, hosted by both JCB and JCB Watling, Copart UK’s Jane Pocock and Phil Briggs were able to see first-hand the amazing new technology being developed to help drive efficiencies, minimise environmental impact, and reduce carbon footprint.

With health and safety always top of Copart’s agenda, they have a stringent service and maintenance arrangement with Watling JCB, which utilises all the latest technology to keep their loaders in optimum condition.

Copart’s loaders are monitored remotely by JCB, using by their JCB Livelink Telemetry System, which allows their service supervisors to access online information regarding machine health. Daily reports show the exact service status and location of each machine, and their engineers will attend Copart’s Operation Centres at the first sign of any potential issues.
Richard Barker, Sales Manager at Watling JCB said:

“Watling JCB provide a central service point of contact for Copart across the country and our service team has developed a great relationship across the Copart sites from three of our key depots.

Copart have a unique application and we have enjoyed working together to fine-tune specification to best suit the requirements of the job, including increasing uptime, reducing admin, and enabling improved decision-making.”

Technology plays a major role in everything Copart do, and their fleet is no exception. With this in mind, Copart is working with Vision Track to install the same connected camera systems which have already been rolled out across their transporter fleet, to all their loaders.

These cameras will enable their managers to access live images, monitor activity in real-time, and instantly retrieve footage if required. This helps to keep health and safety at the forefront of their operations, whilst protecting our customers’ valuable assets.

And, with environmental values strongly aligned to our own, Copart’srelationship with JCB enables them to collaborate on the production of future build orders to ensure that they achieve their ‘greenest fleet on the street’ strategy.

At Copart, we are committed to minimising environmental impact in everything we do, so we’re very excited about collaborating with JCB on orders for future vehicle loaders and exploring lower-emission options including alternative fuels and renewable energy.”
